In short, we are a full-service home service company that includes interior painting in Silver Spring.  

Even though we have painted many homes, you may not have heard of us.  That is because we do very little advertising.  Instead we rely on repeat business and referrals.  On average, 74% of our work comes from one of those two sources.

Interior Painting in Silver Spring: It's All About Communication

All of our interior painting jobs in Silver Spring have clearly written details for both the customer and the lead painter.

What Separates Us From the Others

From the beginning to the end of your interior painting job, we have learned the importance of communication.

Our communication starts when you call us and a live voice, usually Iva, answers.  Once the appointment is set, and the estimator arrives, he doesn’t go into a big sales presentation.  Instead, he asks questions and listens, and listens some more to understand your wants and needs. 

Next, the communication continues through detailed proposals to eliminate any confusion about the scope of work.

I think you will appreciate the next step.  If you award us the job, the estimator is now your project manager.  This helps reduce communication problems and allows the jobs to progress seamlessly. 

Finally, our estimator/ project manager now transitions into the painting company owner at the end of the job.  In other words, he scrutinizes the job to make sure everything is just as you initially requested.

Interior Painting in Silver Spring:  the Prep Work

Prep work is vitally important to having a beautiful interior paint job, and spackling is part of the process.  Unfortunately, spackle dust is light and can travel through the house, creating a huge mess. 

We use a vacuum attachment when sanding spackle, which captures 95% of the dust particles.

The issue of  spackle dust spreading throughout a house, even finding its way into closets, is a common problem that many interior painting contractors overlook. Our solution with vacuum attachments effectively addresses this issue.

We avoid this problem by sanding with vacuum attachments on our sanders, which collect 95% of the dust before it has a chance to land where no one wants it. 

As a painting contractor for over 30 years, we’ve incorporated best practices like vacuum attachment.  As a result, we know a lot about the best paints to use because we have thoroughly tested 40 paints.

Choosing the Right Paint

Most painting companies have their favorite go-to paint.  Whether it is Ben Moore or Sherwin Williams, there really is no one-size-fits-all.  Therefore, it is important to have a large breadth of knowledge to know which one fits your particular needs.  Moreover, it has been interesting to find that the more expensive paints are not always the best choice.  In addition to these fine paints below, we also do reviews on C2 Cabinet Paint.

  • Coverage

  • Washability
  • Durability
  • Self-priming
  • Ability to touch-up

Choosing the Right Color

For about 6 years or so, we were stuck in the light gray spectrum for the most popular interior painting colors.  Fortunately, we are stretching our palettes.

Tips For Picking the Right Interior Painting Colors

Color adds interest to a room.  But the color doesn’t have to come from the paint color. 

The picture on the right has its walls painted with neutral color from PPG Transcend.  There needs to be a splash of color added, and the throw pillows provide that beautifully.  In contrast, if we were to take the throw pillows from the sofa in the left picture and replace them with the one on the right, the room would look dull. 

Whether you are buying a home or selling a home will also factor into which colors you should consider.  Picking neutral colors like Owl Gray by Ben Moore is a popular choice.
